The Microcredit Summit Campaign believes that students who complete an internship with our organization should come out of it with a more nuanced understanding of the sector, particularly who are the actors, what are the challenges and exciting innovations, and how the sector is evolving to better serve the interest of the poorest. Our staff work closely with interns as part of a close-knit team, exposing them to the inner-workings of a development organization and teaching them about the various issues that concern microfinance practitioners, such as client protection, social performance, health integration, gender empowerment, etc. Additionally, interns will have unique opportunities to interact directly with major actors in microfinance as well as to attend learning events and seminars in the DC area.
We are seeking five (5) interns for the Summer and will be seeking three (3) interns for the Fall semester (submit in July) to assist in data collection and entry, communication with supporters and member institutions, and marketing and outreach to Microcredit Summit Campaign members. All interns also assist with administrative tasks, communications, and basic research. The interns will have unique opportunities to interact directly with major actors in the international development field, particularly in the field of microfinance, as well as to attend learning events and seminars in the DC area.
Requirements (please mention these in your cover letter)
If you are interested, please send your resume and a cover letter to info[@]microcreditsummit.org. Campaign internships are unpaid and we do not pay relocation expenses.
